Any chance he was attacked simply because he was riding a bicycle? Was there an attempt to steal the bicycle?

Sounds gang related or retaliatory. Apparently the guy was lying in wait for this guy.
If nothing was stolen, the odds of some loony crouching in a bush and just randomly hitting someone over the head is pretty small.

Please don't bring up the words gangs or day workers. This is obviously about legal gun owners getting out of control. Ban assault rifles!

Someone is having a lot of trouble commenting to the Nancy Lieber story. Can an admin help them?

The city needs to do a lot of work to bring this part of the city up. Too many hoods in the area. I have done more foreclosures in this area I care to count. Its telling.
